Hello BGAA 

just wanted to offer some great information about our upcoming social that I am planning.  We have a great meeting scheduled including a portrait demo and a speaker/artist from Portland, Celest Bergin.  I wanted to include her bio for you!

After receiving training at The Chicago Art Institute and Mt. Hood Community College (in Graphic Design), Celeste worked in advertising for Selby Martin, and Weiden + Kennedy. Like many commercial art professionals, her first love had been drawing and painting and ultimately she pursued a career in Fine Art. Beginning in 2005 Celeste merged her business acumen with painting, with an end-result of participation in over 90 shows. Recently, she was selected as one of the top painters in the region for inclusion in the first annual Plein Air Invitational presented by the Portland Art Museum.  She is Curator of the prestigious Columbia Art Gallery Plein Air 2012 competition/ event.
Celeste’s presentation entitled “Motivation, Marketing & Moxie” dispels the myth that the art world is only for an elite few. Join her on August 25 at 11:00 to find out more!
(Celeste has exhibited widely in the Pacific Northwest her work is included in many private collections; she is represented by Broderick Gallery in Rainier, Oregon).
  Don't miss this fun packed social!!!!! See you there!
